    Hi,

    I added a video background in a row here:

    http://marinos178.178.axc.nl/references/

    But how can I make it play fullscreen in the background?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi @jezus

    Can you please send us a mockup of how you want it to look?

    Do you want the video to occupy fullscreen while the specific references boxes are over it? If yes, the best option is to set the row with the video background to full height then move the boxes for the references to this row.

    Thanks!

    sounds good, thanks

    Hi @jezus

    I am not quite sure what you mean on your last reply. Are you acknowledging that you will be sending a mockup or are you acknowledging the 2nd part of my reply?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    I have another question about the video BG:

    I added it to the homepage and I am wondering if it’s possible to make the loading process a bit more fluently.

    http://marinos178.178.axc.nl/

    Right now the complete background is black before the video appears.
    Are there preloader options of any kind?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Hi @jezus

    The black screen is from the video itself, so even if you add a preloader, the theme can’t crontrol the black screen that appears before the video plays.

    Regards,

    Haha! That is a very good answer and amazing discovery for me. It gives me hope. Thank you.

    I will use another video anyway. Do you know what kind of resolution is best for this BG Video?

    ( it would be great if the video BG would be working on a tablet in the future.
    -and maybe smartphone? – smartphone=no priority-

    Rightnow on a tablet it’s visible but doesn’t play. I will send a url of a tablet user test video soon)

    Hello.

    I am afraid the black is not in the video. I added a new video, I edited it myself: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a_1zgbW5SVo&feature=youtu.be. Maybe it has something to do with the size of the video? Do you have knowledge about suitable resolutions/filesizes of video backgrounds?

    Thanks again.

    The user test video’s on this page show the video is not playing on a tablet at all.

    Hi @jezus

    The black screen is from the video or any videos from Youtube. If you check Youtube videos it will show a black screen if it’s still trying to load the video.

    I will need to confirm with the developer if background videos will also not work on iPads/tablets since I also tested this on our site and the video is also not playing.

    Regards,
